The Kingdom of Cyrothica is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High-Queen Salma Cortez with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, parental licensing program, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 3.944 billion Cyrithicans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alligastira. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cyrothican economy, worth 642 trillion Cyriths a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 162,882 Cyriths, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products, videogames like 'Equalia: Knights of Self-Confidence' are proving inexplicably unpopular, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and High-Queen Salma Cortez's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cyrothica's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Strangerealism.

Cyrothica is ranked 6,727th in the world and 17th in International Democratic Union for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 338.95 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
